'.' qop -po.Iij ''he latter' scht'me to drain
f the Everglades.
The .Metropolis takes the position
that -uch a grigrantic proposition .should
not lie attempted hby the State, he.au'se
eminent engineers have asserted the
drainage scheme is nt feasiblee. ,,v-
ernor toward, it i- true, prei'ent.-
other authorities which conttind it is
lpotssible to drain it.

In a,'Ti1-7. in the company of ('apt.
Abner Jihnson and a number of other
cattlemen and guided ,y Indians.. went
through what i was told on atit ute the
it was drier than it had ever been in
the hitorv of man He traversed vastt
tracts of fand a. sterile as the Desert
of Saraha. and cro*sed in canoes, necks
of sloughs. consisting of a .surface of
two or three feet of water, with liquid
mud under it of an urkrown depth. I
saw a pole thrust thr< ugh this mud for
over twenty feet without tu< hing bot-
tom Wes'wo;:ldof where ] rossd was
a vast expa.se ,f .imilar mud and
|Her. many to,-;r's if a< rs being,
in view and broken here ;-nd there ub
pine and hamnok islands. The sterdle
lands did not con?,ist of ,ar.d, but of a


ihalky formation, whose dust when
thrown up v the hoofs of the horses
penetrated the nostrils, causing an irri-
tating sensation. For miles upon miles
not a blade of grass was growing, show-
' jng the utter harrennt'-s of the soil
e traveled along this route for days,.
d finally came out at Miami, which


was then. as no%%-, the couints' seuttof
Dade county.

uat Igwarranted in saying that the inte-
ri>(r f the Everg lades is a basin. The
psri < sh .hown ty ('ol. Kramer's survey
na alt,,gether misleading. In the first
partt, while the waters on Lake Mee-
chxahe- are about seventeen feet above
tre wean. there is. no gradualfall tothe
ocean. neither is Lake Okeechobee in
utr v ene apartof the Everglades The
I ka L.es on the extreme northern end
sf what may be termed the rim of the

illand in the Evergladesi hows that the
enormous basin is not a level, b.ut it un-
dulating.and underni ath a great deal-of
the muck and their soil is nothing but
rock. which would cost enormously to
excavate
[ISTINCT WATERSHEDS
Again. it is absolutely nothing but i
speculation to claim that the stwamp

Yen, the people of Florida have a
right to know where the money in com-

not only drain the Internial Improve-
ment fund of money, which will le only
a drop in the bucket, for it will take
millions of dollars, authorities say, and
every man who votes and works for it
helps to put another heavy tax burden
on a people who are already taxed to
death. Reader, just think a little Is
not your now very high tax burden just
about as much a you can bear. If the
propered amendment is adopted the
dra nage tax can, and there is no doubt
will, be asseessed against every one of
you. Do any one of you wish 6 or 10

will vote against all sorts o(f scheming
tricksters and their schemes A vote;


cast for a member of the legislature
who will support the drainage scheme,
the insurance scheme, and maybe many
others, will be a vote to send men to
the Legislature to help further burden
and oppress the people, and truly some
big men and some big politicians are
trying to get enough of those kind of
men elected to the next Legislature.
You know who will vote in the Legiala-
ture in the interest of the people, be-
cause their only interests are in the
people; vote only for such.

Governor Broward is certainly a good
patron of Uncle Sam's potoffce de-
partment. -Palatka Timee-HeraWd.

The Bartow Record is the only paper
we know of that praises Governor Brow -
ard for his drainage graft The press
of Florida is against the Everglades
drainage scheme and the editors are not
being paid o) much per inch for their
editorials either.. Tallahassee will soon
become a first-class postoffice if Mr
Broward keeps up his present patron-

Napoleon Bonaparte Broward may keep
a campaign promise To gratify his
whims, must we be bankrupted and the
public money poured into a rat-hole,
which competent authorities say cannot
be drained? But admit that it could be
drained., every foot of it. even then it
is almost certain it cannot pos.sibly bring
back to the people near what it will
cost; and again, there is no doubting
that the dollars that have been spent

A MAN OF HONESTY.
When Attorney General W. H. Ellis
spoke at DeLand two summers ago, a
candidate for the position to which he
was elected, he impressed our people as
a mail of honesty and firm convictions,
and he has acted as such since his elec-
tion He had a hot time recently when
the ring at Tallahassee were givingAu t
the State printing at a price 4 eoube
what it could be done for by othAr
printing establishments The ring,
however. succeeded in letting the con-
tract to the Tallahassee shop, the Capi-
tal Printing <'o.. at an exorbitant price,

S;eneral Ellis had warned him more than
once. was faced by the General, and
told in good plain English what he
might expect if he did so again. That
whole transaction-the awarding of the
contract from beginning to end, was
amusing. We are certain other mem-
bers beside General Ellis were heartily
disgusted, but he alone registered ob-
jections to things that did not look
right, and which were not the best
things that could have happened in the'
interest of the public good. General
Ellis, we believe, can be depended upon
at all times to do the right thing, and
we believe his associates would be bet-
ter off many times were they to take
his advice rather than haning on that
adviser of theirs in I 1. Fund matters.

Weoa* n Ales to Be.
It is said that one of the points made
by Judge Stephens over in the Third
district against Mr. Lamar, whoe Job
as congressman he wants, is that that
gentleman is "rich." A hefty argu-
ment, truly! We are not rich, but we
are mighty anxious to be and we opine
that Jndge Stephen is of thesameway
of think about his own case. The
man who do 't want to improve his
material fortunes is of precious little
account, as a general rule, for he has
neither energy or ambition, and without
the" he is vary nearly nothing as a
useful human factor. The more rich
we have the better for us all, a propo-
sition as obviously true as its oeenverse
that the more poor men we have the
worse for us all. It is a pretty hard
old world at beat, but would be a much
harder one but for the brains and ener-
gy that create wealth, that make
money and enable us to interchange the
products of our labor on profitable terms
to ourselves. It is the rankest dema-
gogy that denounces the rich merely be-
cause they are rich, and it is an appeal
which can never be effective except
among the most ignorant, stupid and
unthinking people.-Live Oak Demo-

Whereas, God in His infinite wisdom
has seen fit to take from the home of
f.' one of our brothers his most precious
friend on earth, the one to whom he
looked for encouragement and guidance
in his younger days and who always
was a source of inspiration to him,
Therefore, be it resolved by the mem-
hers of the Tallahassee Lodge, No. 9137.
ot the Benevolent Order of Elks, that
we learn with deep regret and sadness
if the death of Mrs Eliza T. Spiller,
the mother of our beloved brother, Ar-
thur G. Spiller While We hbow in hum-
ble submission to the will of the Gran'i
Exalted Ruler of the LUniverse yet we
are not unlmindfu! of the great loss sus-
6 tainted by our brother andi the vacant
place in his home that never can be
tilled, and we extt nd to him our sincere
sympathy in his sad bereavement. The
unpublished gifts to des-erving charity
and the genial good fellowshill folr
which the Brothernood of Elks stand
were characteristics in the life of this
good woman \We knew her as one of
the brighest and most cheerful women
of our city, bringing sunshine and hap-
piness in the lives of others by her no-
ble Christian character and unselfish
disposition.
Resolved further, that a copy of these
resolutions be spread upon the minutes
of this lodge and that copies be fur-
nished our brother and the local papers
for publication.

The Popular Liver Medicine
Will Keep You Well
A GUARANTEED CURE for all diseases produced by TOR.
PID LIVER and IMPURE BLOOD. Do not fill your system
with Arsenic, Calomel and Quinine. They act as rank poisons
wnich vitiate the blood, debilitate the system, and leave a trail
of had symptoms which require years to obliterate. HERB-
INE is purely vegetable and contains no mineral or narcotic
poisons, is absolutely harmless and is the simple remedy of
nature. It carries off all poison in the system and leaves no
injurious effects.
CURED BY HERBINE AFTER OTHER
REMEDIES FAILED
Mr. L. A. Hicks, Iredell, Texas, says: I was
sick in bed for eight months with liver trouble, the
doctor seemed to do me no good. I was told to try
Herbine, and it cured me in a short time. I cannot
recommend this wonderful medicine too highly."
